Spring; the green belt season

Symbolising growth and renewal, spring is a great time to put into action all those great ideas we had during winter; no more excuses! 
The dojang opens again on Wednesday 8th October, and with the warmer weather fast approaching, classes will begin to move outdoors. That means Ninja Runs for the Kids Class and tougher sessions for the Youth Class with lots of sweating in store.
The hall will be required by the NSW Board of Studies for a number of classes at the start of the term, so please keep an eye out for signs directing you to where we'll be training (we'll still be at Camdeville Public School though).
Congratulations to Millie, Ella and Nero with your latest promotions, and a big welcome to Stella to the Kids Class.

Kicking in the park

Need a reason to get out and about on the weekend?

Each term we will hold semi-regular weekend sessions in the parks in and around Newtown (most likely Camperdown Memorial Rest Park). These will be relaxed informal classes open to everyone; not just students, but friends, neighbours, family members – EVERYONE! 
The classes will focus on stretching, strengthening, bag work (lots of kicking!) and general self defence skills.
Everyone is welcome to join in, even if you've never done martial arts before. 
We'll provide more details once a date has been decided on.

Share the Art

We're always looking for new ways to 'Share the Art' of Soo Bahk Do. One of the best ways to get students involved in promoting their art is through involvement in demonstrations. 
A demonstration is generally a 10 to 15 minute snap-shot of Soo Bahk Do, with lots of dynamic kicking, partner-work routines and board breaking to 'wow' the audience. These are not only a good promotional tool for the dojang, but also a great confidence booster for students. 
Events like school and community fairs are a great opportunity get out and show Soo Bahk Do to the community. We are booked in to demonstrate at the 2015 Newtown Festival, but that's over 12 months away, so we're looking for other opportunities before then. If you have any suggestions or ideas please let us know.
